Do you think it's fair not to play a LEFTY catcher just because she's left handed. and one of the best catchers around?

Starting a lefty catcher does have disadvantages. She will have a harder time throwing out runners at third because she will have to clear the batter and then turn her body to throw. A right handed catcher can just clear the batter and already be in a good throwing position. Also, on a play at the plate lefties have to backhand the tag, which is very hard and often umpires have harder times seeing that type of tag being applied. If the girl you are talking about is the best catcher on the team, then she should start. But if there is an equal player in a right hander, it makes more sense to start her.

Is GOD right-handed?

God created "right-handed" and "left-handed", just as he created time, but these things were for us, humans. God isn't stereotyped into "right-" or "left-" handed, he created these things, and since he is a spirit, he is GOD, he may not even have "hands" , and if he had, he would be able to use them both the same, both way better than humans.

Why are there no left-handed throwing catchers in baseball?

A left-handed throwing catcher would have a harder time throwing runners out at third, since it's easier to throw across your body, a right hander to his left, and a left hander to his right. This is the same reason that there are no left handed second basemen, shortstops, or third basemen, since their most common throw (to first base) is to their left. A left handed catcher would have an easier throw trying to pick a runner off first. Also, since most batters hit right handed, a left handed catcher would more commonly find the batter slightly in his way as he tried to throw down to second.

Who is it easier to steal first base from left or right handed pitcher?

You can't steal first base. It's easier to steal second base off of a right handed pitcher because the right handed pitcher has his back to the runner on first, and therefore has a harder time trying to pick the runner off.

Is there a difference between right- and left- handed field hockey sticks?

Yes. Right-handed sticks are by far the most common, and are the only ones permitted by rule. They have the flat side on the left side when the hook is facing away from the body, meaning they are used in a right-handed fashion. Left-handed sticks are virtually nonexistent (because they are illegal for use and so are not not worth the time to make or use), but can be found in some specialised places. They are the mirror image of right-handed sticks.

Was Bruce Lee left-handed or right-handed?

From my analyzes, Bruce Lee was a right-handed. Bruce Lee's right biceps were 0.5 inches larger than his left. And his right forearm was .05 inches larger than his left. (Age: 24) Source: Bruce Lee: The Art of Expressing The Human Body compiled and edited by: John Little page 41 This is a very left brained answer. It is obvious that he is ambidextrous, which ultimately means that he is left handed, because he fights left- handed most of the time but then switches. Left handers have better connection between the two spheres of the brain an so ambidextrousness is primarily in lefties. Jimmy Hendrix who coincidentally shares the same birthday as Lee was lefty, but was able to play guitar both left handed and right handed. Lee's primary pose is left handed with his left hand in the back and his right hand is in the front. This is a left handed posture. From a right brained perspective (watching what he is doing) he would appear to be left handed. Not to mention that his whole theme was to not be restricted by tradition which is more of a left-handed or right brained perspective.

If the ball hits home plate then hits batter are you out?

No, on a throw the runner can't just be hit by the ball and be out. Even if it hits the plate. The catcher would have to tag the runner with the ball, or with his glove while the ball is in his glove. The only time a runner can be out like that is when they are running the bases and hit by a ball hit by the batter(The runner must be in fair territory). Wrong. If you are a right handed batter, it is possible to hit the plate then hit you. You are out. If you are out of the box. If you are in the box, the ball will called dead. Scored as a foul.

When the right time to throw a curveball in baseball?

Why do some right handed fighter fight left handed.people like manny pacquiao and Anderson silva are right handed but fight left handed?

Anderson doesnt fight right or left handed he fights southpaw (most of the time), which is right hand in front. Bruce lee was also right handed but would fight southpaw. I think they do this to confuse people, it also strengthens their weaker side.... so when anderson switches to orthodox people prob think that is his weaker side when really its his stronger side. But who really knows other than Mr. Silva...
